ABSTRACT
The article reports on the opposition of Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Kevin Martin to blanket waivers for small cable operators from rules which require analog and digital carriage of local television stations in the U.S. in 2009. Martin believes that the commission adopted a waiver process that makes the most sense. According to him, operators should not be uncomfortable with the carriage rules because all the FCC did was codify the status quo.
